This excerpt is from my story It All Started With Cinders Malone's Dress. My hero and heroine from A New Dream are getting married. Violet and her mother have returned home from the bridal shop to some bad news. Keep in mind this is the day of the wedding. Fred is her father. The 'her' in the excerpt is the lady baking the wedding cake.
"Her grandson let the dog into her house, and by the time she found it, it had eaten one whole layer and licked the frosting off the rest of the cake." He pursed his lips. "It's a big dog. A Great Dane. I wonder if she could kind of wipe the good layers off and re-frost them?"
Violet and Beth made such an outcry Fred jumped from his recliner to make his escape.
